voip fax + grandstream gxp-2000

Big day today, but more on that at a later time.

Today my grandstream gxp-2000 arrived, it’s a nice sip phone. My girlfriend was complaining that the quality of the microphones sucked and that she some times lost the connection. Not sure if this was due to her computer or network or … I’ll checkup on it.
I have to say, it’s a nice phone. I plugged it into the network et voila dhcp gave it a nice ip. From the docs I read there was a webserver built in. Logged in, configured it for 2 extensions, one as normal and one as intercom. Created 2 extensions for the 2 lines, easy as pie πŸ™‚

Now when I call my first extension using ekiga on my laptop the telephone rings. WhenI call the second extension the speaker turns on and we have an intercom system. Very nice actually and really easy to setup!!!

Second thing is, I figured it out with gfax, really but really stupid. I was always trying to connect to my asterisk box. Only thing I had to to was connect straight to the weepee account and it send the fax for me. Because I already had a free fax receiving account I sent it to there and voila within the minute a mail with attachment as an image my sent fax.

Hmmm, I have to admit I’m a geek. But don’t worry I’m proud of it!! πŸ˜€
